(3.3/5 based on 20 reviews on the web)
江島神社(えのしまじんじゃ)は、神奈川県藤沢市江の島にある神社である。旧社格は県社で、現在は神社本庁の別表神社。日本三大弁天の一つに数えられる。祭神宗像三女神を祀る。島の西方の「奥津宮(おくつみや)」に多紀理比賣命、中央の「中津宮(なかつみや)」に市寸島比賣命、北方の「辺津宮(へつみや)」に田寸津比賣命をそれぞれ祀り、「江島大神」と総称する。江戸時代までは弁財天を祀っており、江島弁天・江島明神と呼ばれた。現在の祭神は明治の神仏分離の際に改められたものである。辺津宮境内の奉安殿には八臂弁財天と妙音弁財天が安置されている。歴史社伝によれば、欽明天皇13年(552年)、神宣に基づき欽明天皇の勅命により、江の島の南の洞窟に宮を建てたのに始まると伝える。神仏習合により当社は金亀山与願寺と称する寺となった。『吾妻鏡』によれば、寿永元年(1182年)、源頼朝の命により文覚が島の岩屋に弁財天を勧請したとあり、これをもって創建とすることもある。歴代の鎌倉幕府将軍・執権や、代々の領主から崇敬を受けた。江戸時代には弁才天信仰が盛んになり、多くの庶民が参詣するようになった。当社には岩本坊・上ノ坊・下ノ坊の3つの別当があり、それぞれ岩屋本宮(現在の奥津宮)・上之宮(現在の中津宮)・下之宮(現在の辺津宮)を管理していた。その中で岩本坊は総別当とされ、江島寺とも称した。慶安2年(1649年)に京都・仁和寺の末寺となってからは、岩本坊のみ院号の使用が認められて「岩本院」と称するようになった。三坊は競って当社の縁起を説いて回り、参詣者を集めた。そのうちに利権争いが起こり、寛永17年(1640年)、岩本院は幕府からの朱印状を得て上ノ坊を吸収した。後に下ノ坊も支配するようになり、岩本院が全島の権益を握ることとなった。
